-Ask your child to trace the sound with their finger, repeating it's phrase as they trace i.e. "Down the wing. Up the wing."

This week, the children have been learning to Represent, Compare and look at the Composition of 1,2&3.
Draw a large circle outside or use a bucket/hoop. Ask your child to throw 3 items into the circle/bucket. How many land inside the circle? How many outside? How could you record your scores? Talk about the composition of three each time i.e. 2 have landed in the bucket, 1 outside. 2 & 1 = 3.
